running my first half marathon on beach

What is a F**cket List? My interpretation? A F**cket List is a fun Bucket List. Maybe your Bucket List is fun, so you already have one.

A F**cket List was created by Karen S. Exkorn, author of Fifty Two Shades of Blue-ish, a Jewish parody of the Fifty Two Shades of Gray series. You can download a chapter from the book at the end of the post.

My F**cket List

I thought this was going to be really easy, but instead I spent my time wondering whether each item I thought should go on my F**cket List was really fun. Or is it just stupid? That’s when I decided I really need this F**cket List because I’m analyzing everything way too much.

The item I keep coming back to is running a marathon. Now I know to many that would not be fun which is why I struggled putting it down. But for me, it’s something that I want to do so bad, but I’ve been afraid to even consider it.

Last year, I decided I was going to run a half marathon and told myself I’ll never run a marathon. I trained really hard all summer and then completed the Rock ‘n Roll Virginia Beach Half Marathon.

Medal for running my first half marathon

Medal for running my first half marathon.

I am so proud of that medal, but I’ve felt compelled to do more, but afraid to say it out loud. So, this is me…now declaring that I want to run a full marathon by the end of 2013. Why? Just because I know I can.

Finished a 20k

Closer and closer to finishing running my first half marathon at 20k now.
